from the romney campaign. there's a lot of target-rich environment for president obama. what about this tax plan. is president obama obligated to supporters to point out to them that this is flawed? what do you think? >> i think the moderators are going e to ask governor romney about a lot of the things that you just talked about. i hope the moderator gives governor romney a chance to do what paul ryan said he didn't have time to do and that is explain how they pay for a $5 trillion tax cut. as you pointed out, ed, it is a time problem that is vexing in this budget. it's a math problem. they can't pay for it. if they can't pay for it, then they are going to raise taxes on the middle class. that's what the economic studies have shown. and look, i don't know anybody who thinks we're another tax cut for a millionaire away from a stronger middle class. that's just not how we have built our economy before and it's not how we're going to continue to make our country strong now. >> will president obama confront romney on these issues or rely on the debate moderator to do it? how aggressive wil

clinton would've sat back and done nothing in this environment. >> yeah. they're doing a lot to try and support the opposition and create the space in which you can get a solution to it. but the real problem in syria is that if this just carries on, it'll go even deeper in to what will be a civil war that can spill out into surrounding countries. i think there is a need to look at what more we can do to create, for example, places of safety for the opposition. and to make it clear that it's a matter of time. actually that message is being delivered very strongly by your government, the european governments, as well. the other change there is in the region, frankly, now there's a lot of support from many of the surrounding countries in the region for a change of regime and the replacement of it with something that is democratic and stable. >> what are some of your suggestions to provide the safety for the oppositions. to do some more to provide the space? >> i think what people are looking at. whether it's possible to create areas within syria in which the opposition can move and we can
